Dealership Information

Whether you are looking for a subcompact car to make your commutes to work or school a little more efficient and budget-friendly, or want to do something good for the environment and reduce your carbon footprint, there are plenty of options to choose from. Today, we at Thomas Nissan of Joliet want to compare two vehicles within the segment—the 2017 Nissan Versa vs 2017 Honda Fit. While both cars are sure to save you some time at the pump, our staff simply cannot stop raving about the unique features inside and out of the Versa. Continue reading this article to see why we can’t get enough of it, then stop into our dealership at 1427 North Larkin Avenue in Joliet, IL, to experience it for yourself!

Let’s begin this comparison with what catches the eye first—the exterior. When it comes to the Versa, you’ll illuminate your path ahead, and even turn a few heads along the way, with the chrome-accented multi-reflector halogen headlights. We know that first impressions are important, so you’ll be pleased to see that the Versa’s headlights are paired perfectly with Nissan’s classic chrome-accented grille with available front fascia chrome accents. You’ll notice that the Fit also features multi-reflector halogen headlights, but what sets these two apart is the absence of chrome accents on the Fit’s front fascia. You’ll find the grille on the Fit is not as sophisticated as the Versa, and unfortunately, it doesn’t give you much glitz and glamor to stare at. In addition, the Versa offers chrome door handles on its higher trim levels, allowing you to add a more luxurious touch to your ride, while the Fit does not offer this feature whatsoever.

When you get behind the wheel of the 2017 Nissan Versa, you’ll notice the refined details that have been crafted to make you feel right at home. The silver-accented steering wheel exudes elegance and is sure to impress your friends when they step into your vehicle. The competitor, on the other hand, fails to integrate those details that you desire. You’ll be able to find your perfect position in the Versa with its 4-way manual adjustable driver’s seat, so that your drives to Bolingbrook Commons Shopping Center is a commodious one. When it comes to sitting comfortably in the Fit, you may find yourself a bit unsatisfied, as its manual adjustments are limited to the seat’s height and the head restraint. As you can see, the Fit may not exactly be the perfect “fit” for every driver.

We hope that this 2017 Nissan Versa vs 2017 Honda Fit near Bolingbrook, IL comparison, has been informative and has helped make your buying process just a little bit easier. Not only does the Versa boast luxe features on the outside, its interior was designed to keep you at your optimal level of comfort while earning some extra style points. Plus, with up to five available trim levels for the Versa and only two for the Fit, you’ll have more customization options when you choose our favorite car—the 2017 Nissan Versa! For more information and to schedule a test drive here at Thomas Nissan of Joliet, give us a call at 815-741-5353. We can’t wait to meet you!
